Antoine’s is a place that you can easily miss if you’re not looking. With no obvious sign or lighting, the first time I came here, I walked around looking for the front door. Our night started with succulent Bluff oysters, served natural with a light vinaigrette and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The tripe (not pictured) was from their Nostalgia Menu and is a dish that they have been serving in Antoine’s for the past 40 years. Tender pieces of tripe with green pepper corns and onion, Cooked in a cream sauce, this dish was interesting. I normally eat tripe with ginger and spring onions at yum cha, but this is my first time trying it in a cream sauce. Taste-wise, it was good but very heavy. The same can be said about the sautéed duck liver with grapes and peppercorn. It was a pleasant dish which I managed to finish, but could do with a little less liver and more of the grapes to cut through the fattiness of the liver.Not expecting such a large entrée, I made the mistake of ordering the chicken and leek pie for my main. Another huge portion, full of chicken, mushroom and leek, all encased in a buttery flaky pie crust. I could only eat a third of it before I realised that this pie has defeated me.Overall, it was a pleasant but expensive meal at Antoine’s. The menu is rather old-fashion and will be a great place to take someone who doesn’t appreciate the current trend of casual loud dining where waiting 30 minutes for a table because of their no-booking policy is the norm. Nothing too fancy about the dishes, just well-cooked hearty dishes!For photos, check out my blog at //mydiningjourney.wordpress.com

Oh my god! It was SOOOO bad. Top 50 restaurants eh? Well I guess your number 50. The food was outdated and really heavy. The staff were not very friendly, the decor was tired and filthy! The cost for the meal was absurd. Do yourselves a favour and go to The French Cafe, Merediths, Roxy, Dine, Bellota, etc etc etc... before going here.We will never go back again - EVER!!!

Antoines Restaurant isn't for everyone but if you're after something different and a bit 'brave' then Antoine's is well worth a visit. The rabbit pie is particularly good (there's hardly anything brave about that is there) but the menu is well worth exploring.
Easily one of the best restaurants in Parnell and been around for as long as I can remember so must be doing something right.
